A quarter of Indian girls do not attend primary school

Many work in textile mills and brick factories to support their families.

Some spend 12 hours a day working, earning  less than $1.

So why are Meena and Muthu so happy

They are running to attend a dance class organised by ODAM, a South Indian Charity committed to providing education to former child labourers, enabling them to achieve their full potential and become role models within their communities.

ODAM works with hundreds of women and girls throughout the poorest Virudunagar districts providing  primary education for almost 100 students  in the KGBV School and accommodation and medical care for girls pursuing higher education at the government secondary school.
